Pupil in rooftop drama at Freemantle Academy in Southampton
SPECIALIST police negotiators were called to a Hampshire school this afternoon after a pupil got on the roof and refused to come down.
Fire crews and paramedics were also called to the scene after the girl, said to be around nine or ten years old, climbed on to the rooftop around 2.15pm.
The drama unfolded at Freemantle Academy in Mansion Road, Shirley, where a teacher is thought to have raised the alarm and called 999.
Hampshire Fire and Rescue Service staff initially began talking with the youngster before police took over.
The stand-off lasted around one hour and 15 minutes before the youngster came down safely and was taken home by officers.
